On The Threshold Of Liberty

I am still coming across pieces of music from way back when, that I have not uploaded to my iPod, mainly because I haven’t been able to find them on CD or download. Until recently one such piece has been the frankly totally magnificent tune http://ccgi.ammonyte.plus.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/onthethresholdofliberty.mp3 “On The Threshold of Liberty” by Mark Isham, from his 1983 CD “Vapour Drawings”, and hails from a time when “New Age” music was going to rule the world.

A version was used as the title music for “Rules of Engagement” starring Samuel L Jackson. I dimly recall that the trumpet was recorded in the same stairwell in Headley Grange where Led Zeppelin had set up the drum kit whilst recording “When The Levee Breaks” for The Runes Album.

Anyway, enjoy.
